OTTAWA (Ticker) -- Dany Heatley and the Ottawa Senators hope to
continue their torrid offensive pace when they host the New York
Islanders on Friday.
After experiencing a short dry spell offensively for two weeks,
the Senators have scored a total of 16 goals over their
three-game winning streak.
Heatley and linemate Daniel Alfredsson both registered a goal
and an assist Wednesday to lift Ottawa to a 6-2 triumph over the
Carolina Hurricanes in a clash of Eastern Conference powers.
The Islanders look to pick up their defensive intensity and snap
their three-game skid.
New York, which has yielded 16 goals in its last three games,
dropped a 6-2 decision to the crosstown rival New York Rangers
Mark Parrish and Trent Hunter registered consecutive goals to
open the scoring, but the Islanders allowed six unanswered
tallies to fall to 2-5-0 in their last seven contests.
